  1. Nikon AF-P DX Nikkor 10-20mm f/4.5-5.6G VR F/4.5-29 Fixed Zoom Lens

    Nikon AF-P DX Nikkor 18-55 mm f/3.5 – 5.6G ED VR Kit Lens

    Nikon AF-P DX Nikkor 70-300 mm f/4.5 – 6.3G ED VR Kit Lens

  2. Based on having a fully-charged battery, how long can you take a video? I heard 30 minutes? I do Mass videos which sometimes last just over an hour and I also take instructional videos which lasts about an hour also. Please advise. Thank you for this interesting and informative video!

  3. Anybody using a Z6 or Z6ii with a Sigma 18-35mm? How does it perform on both photo and video? Is it worth getting the Sigma for it. Just looks like a perfect lens for the 4K 60fps on the Z6ii since it has a 1.5x crop anyway. But what about the photography with it? Does the 1.5x crop really hurt the image quality?

  4. Yes, my opinion is biased. I have been a Nikon user most of my life.
    I recently got a Z6 and I am super happy with it.
    It is like I am getting back into photography all over again.
    Thanks for posting this video.

  5. Will the Z6-s be 12MP for better low light quality in 4k full frame video and no limit recording time? Will it include internal ProresRAW video, and will the preamp be as good as the preamp of sony’s PCMD100 audio recorder? Will it also have internal gps location, with off/on choice.

  6. 4:55 to me that doesn't make sense. I know what you like but with Canon EOS R, you can look at the screen both behind or in front of the camera. Nikon should have that option and people don't want to use flipping screen then don't.

  7. I really liked the Z6. besides all the tech specs just the overall system. On my channel, I posted a review after using it for a year hope it can be helpful for someone here planning to buy Nikon Z:)

  8. Does anyone know about the battery grip that's available for this? Is it possible to hot-swap one battery while the other is being used? I shoot timelapse, so I'm interested in ways of supplying continuous power. I've been waiting years for camera manufacturers to think of allowing an external 12v supply, but apparently I'm going to be waiting for ever 🙁

  9. nikon will only give us a side slip-out screen only after 5 or 10 years when they are about to go bankruptcy again … why because we have seen this again and again … this is nikon bad habit !

  10. Try setting up your F1 button to AF/[+} in Control Assignment f2. By tipping the F1, You then can switch between AF-S & AF-C using the back dial… then use the front dial to switch between all the focus screens for both…. After that adjustment, tap the front are back AF button to resume normal dial operations. Tap F1 any time for on the fly changes.

  11. Thank you for this video..i own a d850 which is great for landscape work but i would like to buy a z6 as well because of the advantages it offers mostly for portrait photography..i would like to ask if you have noticed when editing portraits ,strange skin structure ..i have seen several portraits shot with z6 in flickr and the skin looks unnatural…i wonder if it is editing error or something with the camera….

  12. I just bought Z6 on Saturday and love it. I have been shooting Nikons for 12 years and shot sony last few years but I sold it and got back to Nikon. just love the Nikon ergo and workflow is so much better than sony

  13. You shouldn't underestimate Nikon, ok this may be their first mirrorless camera but it's far from their first camera and it really shows in ergonomics and layout. Also they made a wonder stroke by introducing a larger lens mount which is helping to deliver fantastic image quality and will come more to the fore as they introduce more Z lenses. There are certain aspects to this camera which are class leading, exciting times for Nikon users. cheers.
